Big Tech is a privacy nightmare, Apple included.

Apple is actually one of the few big tech companies that handles user privacy and security very well…

For third party apps? Sure. For their own products? Nope.

Ever wonder how Apple Maps knows where you live even though you never inputted that information?

Also how only in December of last year did Apple announce they were adding end to end encryption to iCloud, and this is after the whole CSAM scanning scandal. Will anyone be able to verify that the encryption is actually end to end and secure? No, since the client software is not open source, and therefore, cannot be publicly audited.

Apple is great at marketing, though, so they advertise that they respect privacy.

Because it uses locations services that you can disable?

Thats not the gotcha you think it is.

The challenge with making it encrypted was data loss/recovery — customer often lose data (by deleting it) and expect apple to recover it.

They literally don't even have end to end encryption when you message anything other than an iphone.
